Has anyone tried to cope with their problems successfully without medication?

Hello, I am new here and I currently take 2 medications to help with my anxiety and wanted to ask if anyone here has ever tried to deal with their disorder naturally? I am currently cutting my dose (per doctors orders) for one medication and would like to know what people do when they feel they need to cope in a healthy way.

I see you wrote this a couple months ago? How is it going with tapering off? I have been without meds working on my anxiety with a therapist who specializes in CBT. Working on changing the way I think about the things that make me anxious and my anxiety in general has been helpful. I'm also trying a mindfulness based stress reduction class online (free) to try to calm my nervous system down a bit. The mindfulness also helps you be more aware of what and how you're thinking as well as acceptance of your anxious thoughts and feelings instead of trying to resist and push them away. I am still working on that acceptance part, and have heard that can be the key to feeling a lot better.
